As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away.

Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete.

Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself.

Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

i have visited Portsmouth Dockyard several times but never bothered to visit HMS Warrior before. What a mistake!! It is fascinating - I didn't expect a mix of cannons and steam power. All around were helpful guides explaining what you were looking at and the firearms demonstration proved popular with young and old alike. Less crowded than HMS Victory, not... More

Very impressed with this visit to look around HMS Warrior, the staff were all very helpful and knowledgeable and it was impressive to view it after HMS Victory and compare the two experiences.

A trip round HMS Warrior is well worth it, lots of interesting parts of the ship. So much to see we spent a couple of hours looking round. We must ensure that our naval history is preserved for future generations. Be aware of steep access ladders and again watch out for low beams. Also very knowledgable guides on board.

Marking the change from sail power to steam engines, this beautiful ship sits in the historic dockyard looking gorgeous. Going below decks you can see the conditions in which the crew sweated shovelling coal into the engines, and how the steam moved the ship forward via pistons and things. Warrior is the historic link between two types of ship and... More

Unlike HMS Victory, where you are rushed around at breakneck speed by a guide, without time to stop and look at your own pace, this ship is superb. Wander around as long as you like, admire the stunning shipbuilding of the Victorians. Well preserved and complete, fascinating for kids as well as us "older kids".

a very interesting attraction to visit whilst at the Historic Dockyard. Captains cabin and Officers accommodation very comfortable but not so for the ordinary seaman. Gives a taste of what life on board would have been like..

The Warrior is impressively huge, considering it is a sailing ship (as well as having engines). I had no idea a sailing ship might be as large as it is. It is very interesting going through the ship, and we learned a great deal. Great for pre-teens to senior citizens (who can go up and down stairs).
